    Glad we agree. Trump has not violated any laws, by not publishing his tax returns. He is in total compliance.

    No one is saying the entire point of becoming President was to make money. Everyone with two eyes is saying that once in office, Trump is doing everything he can to use it to the Trump Org's advantage.

    How so? You were all about draining the swamp. Trump has done the opposite. You don't care.

    CRG is a bit. At this point....any bashing of another politician deserves nothing more than a eyeroll after the shameless excusing he's done for Trump.

    His posts, mostly the long INFOWARS laden garbage posts, have been skipped. Nothing of note there. Save your brain cells.

    Air Force deal to refuel near Trump’s Scottish resort reportedly signed under Obama

    The controversial arrangement by the U.S. Air Force to refuel at a Scottish airport near President Trump’s Turnberry golf resort apparently was signed under the Obama administration, according to multiple reports.

    The details emerged as the Air Force was called to explain a March stopover in the Scottish resort -- with Democrats on the House Oversight Committee writing to Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan as part of their investigation into alleged conflicts of interest by the president. The twist revealing that the airport deal predates his administration could boost Trump's case.

    Politico, which was among the outlets to publish stories this week examining the relationship between the Air Force and the resort, reported that the Air Force crews stayed at Trump’s Scottish resort up to 40 times since 2015.

    It also reported that the contract with the Prestwick Airport was in fact signed during the Obama administration. The Washington Post also reported that the airport was sending visiting crews to Trump’s course before he ran for president.

    The Air Force said in a statement that relatively few crews stayed at Trump Turnberry between 2015 and 2019.

    “We reviewed the vast majority of the 659 overnight stays of Air Force crews in the vicinity at Glasgow Prestwick Airport between 2015 and 2019. Approximately six percent of those crews stayed at the Trump Turnberry,” the statement from an Air Force official said. “As a practice, we generally send aircrews to the closest, most suitable accommodations within the government hotel rate. The review also indicated that about 75 percent of the crews stayed in the immediate vicinity of the airfield and 18 percent stayed in Glasgow.”

    The Post noted that no evidence has emerged to show Trump did anything to alter the existing arrangement since entering office. The New York Times, meanwhile, found that the deal involved the Air Force paying a discounted rate of as little as $130 a night, compared with a typical rate of more than $300 a night. It was one of 13 hotels booked by the airport, and is approximately 40 minutes away from the airport.

    It's not about the deal to refuel at the airport. It's about driving 40 minutes to Turnberry to stay there and that only started in August 2017. Did you even skim the post immediately above yours? Yes, it's 40 minutes from the airport, but as the map I posted showed on page 8, there are literally dozens of hotels closer.

    Yeah, but they got a cheaper and discounted rate. What’s wrong with that?
